I have heard talk of this Unnatural Man, and not unlike the yeti, I have never seen photographic evidence. You got that in your folder??By this time during the fall of 1994, we had become most intrigued by Unnatural Man. And like so many others with pathologies before us, we began to collect trophies. Unnatural Trophies, you could say. One treasure would be a picture of the Man himself. But it's not like we could just go up to him and say, "Hi, you don't know us, but we've been tracking you for the last month and a half. How about a picture?" No, we would need to be craftier than that.

Knowing that Unnatural Man typically ate at the University Center dining hall in the evenings, we began taking a camera to dinner with us. All we would need to do is secure a table close to the cashiers in order to keep a look out. This would also position us such that most people would have to walk by or near our table. When, and if, the Man showed up, we'd just pretend to be taking a picture of people at the table, capturing him in the background. We weren't Monroe Scholars for nothing, folks.
True to form, Unnatural showed up, and we readied the camera. As he walked by, someone snapped the picture, and we celebrated with our Blue Plate Specials.
All that was left was to get the film developed, and the picture blown up poster-size. When I picked up the film, I rifled through the prints, and here is what I found:
Only one word to describe it. Unnatural.
